defense cuts that are coming up this january. these are things he has mentioned before, so this speech seemed to be an opportunity to make that argument a little more forcefully and and a place like virginia where it is a major battleground this year. the obama campaign is responding with a tv ad of their own in virginia, focusing on governor romney's foreign trip abroad, saying this was a reckless tripped and using a lot of footage from that. less than a month away from election day, we have a turn back toward foreign policy. it is the mirror image of what happened in 2008 when foreign policy had the election but once the financial collapse happened, suddenly everything turned to the economic issues and now you're seeing the other way around. host: thank you for joining us. appreciate it. >> this is where mr. romney will give his speech this morning. this is the virginia military institute in lexington, virginia. you are looking at the hall of valor. now romney is set to give his foreign policy speech at of the debate on foreign policy october 26 in florida. we will have live coverage
, a total sham. and moreover, governor romney also proposes a $2 trillion defense increase. now, if you want to do that, you think there's a case for it, and some of the military people are wrong. they need it. then you at least ought to say how you're going to pay for it. >> howard? >> hey, joe? >> the fascinating thing about all this is the positioning. now, i actually disagree with joe on raising the entitlement age. i don't have a problem with raising the age on social security because i agree with you actuarily. raising the age on medicare is really a bad idea. it's the one thing that would make me not support simpson-bowles if i were in the congress because medicare is a health insurance program. it isn't about an entitlement. it's about figuring out how to get everybody health insurance. the one program we have that covers everybody that's universal is medicare. why would you want to raise the age on medicare? but i agree with you on social security and the other entitlements. we cannot continue to have this kind of level of entitlement spending if we're going to balance the budget. b
'hanlon, senior fellow with the 21st century defense initiative. two men better equipped for today i could not find. eugene, you have been a foreign correspondent in places as far afield as argentina and europe. you know the middle east. mitt romney says he wants to arm the syrian rebels with serious amounts of military hardware. i ask you, eugene, is america ready and willing to start a proxy war with iran on the road to damascus? >> well, good question, and first of all, i think you have to ask given the way romney has changed his policy in various areas, you have to ask is he serious about that. but if he is, that's the one sort of bit of news that came out of his speech today. it's not as if we're not already at least assisting in the arming of the rebels. there was an intelligence finding by president obama that said we could give covert aid essentially through our allies, through the saudis and the qataris, but we have discouraged them from providing heavy weapons because we're afraid those heavy weapons might fall into the hands of terrorists. so that is the one difference that i th
when our words are not backed by deeds, when our defense spending is being arbitrarily and deeply cut, when we have no trade agenda to speak of and the perception of our strategy is not one of partnership, but of passivity. it is time to change course in the middle east. one final thing, carol, on a campaign conference call yesterday romney's foreign policy team talked about some presidents of past they might be shaping their foreign policy principles after. they talked about the presidencies of jfk, truman and even bill clinton. after that first debate when a lot of pundits on the right and the left were sensing that mitt romney might be moving to the middle on domestic policy issues, there might be some of that on foreign policy when we hear this speech later on this morning. >> jim acosta, we'll check back with you. >>> okay. let's take another peek at the obama campaign's preemptive strike. remember, it's called a prebuttal because it's challenging a speech romney will not give for a couple more hours. listen. >> when our u.s. diplomats were attacked in libya, "the new york times"
. >> reporter: good morning. jennifer bennett said she expected defense lawyers to scrutinize her past but believes they went too far, requesting her search engine records to try to prove she had not been raped. now she's speaking out and telling her story to keep other victims from suffering the same. if you've been beaten, sexually assaulted and strangled, should it matter to the court what you've been googling? that's what the defense was demanding from victim jennifer bennett. they subpoenaed her journal, computer, even her search engine records. >> i drew my line in the sand and this is where i'm going to stick up for myself. i was not the criminal. so investigating me and my life, it just didn't seem right. it didn't seem just. >> reporter: her ordeal began in beautiful bend, oregon on a first date with a charming doctor she had met on match.com. thomas bray, a former anesthesiologist and teacher at a local community college. the date was going well so they went for a night cap at his home where bennett said he attacked her. the assault lasted five hours. >> she had been strangle
, youun the three points here, the three points here, the offense and the defense. i think something like that took place in this case. the president has not debated in four years. it was a wake-up call. i think he'll do better the next time, but i think it would be hard to do worst. >> schieffer: best hitters always have to take batting practice, and maybe he needed some batting practice. john, do you think mitt romney has gone to the etch a sketch here? is he still the conservative he was when he was running against rick santorum and some of those folks or did he actually move to the middle during this debate? >> certainly there was some rhetoric moving to the middle. but remember, mitt romney has one advantage with his conservative base-- his opponent is barack obama. and barack obama has already demonstrated through executive orders and all kinds of things that he will have a very activist second term. so regardless of what misgivings some people might have about mitt romney if you're a conservative, barack obama's second term would be a disaster. >> schieffer: i want to ask both of y
with deeds. our defense spending is deeply cut . we have no trade agenda to speak of and the perception of our strategy is not one of partnership but of passivity. >> steve: here is pete is here. >> good morning. >> steve: mitt romney would like to be commander-in-chief. did he make a good case for himself . >> it was a fantastic speech and speech about leadership and carrying the mantel for freedom and still in a dark and difficult world and used libya for the larger struggle we face. he put it in the context of the larger foil we have faced. there are forces of radical islamism that seek our destruction and we stand up up to that. there will not be daylight for israel. and red line for iran. >> brian: he brought up the fact george marshall said the best thing to do to avoid war is to build up our defense and make us stronger. that's the best deterrent in war and proposed to build that rather than shrink the military. >> that is right. that is the difference between governor romney approach and the president. peace through strength. and the president said standing back is less provocat
enemies in the middle east when our words are not backed up by deeds. when our defense spending is arbitrarily and deeply qaeda. while i have a trade agenda to speak of and it is not one of partnership, but opacity. >> it garnered a headline in "usa today." romney's hope is not a strategy. susan glasser, how much of his speech was against president obama and what he stunned? and how much of slain at his own trajectory and agenda? >> mostly most was the challenger, this is a critique of the obama policy and that is a very common tax by challengers. there were some good lines. he talked hope is not a strategy. he's tried to emphasize his critique of obama as fighting from behind, which was sort of an unnamed administration official at the very end of a new yorker magazine piece last year and has become a sort of state of republican critiques of the president's foreign policy. that being said, there are some real differences between obama and romney when it comes to foreign policy. for example, romney has russia as an important geopolitical united states. much of the surprise of hi
-fly zone over syria sending arms of supplies to anti-government groups and bombing the air defense or sending troops into syria. so, we asked them about each one. let me give you a summary with a very quick comment. you can see that 60% support increasing diplomatic sanctions on syria. but what is interesting is 59% support a no-fly zone over syria as well. this is interesting because we can have a conversation about what that means, will the public thinks because you can see from the three categories below that there is only 22% support arming the syrian rebels. and i should say on that one there was a poll that was done also in june asking the same questions. by large, the results of the poll were pretty much the same with an exception that in between there was also a cnn poll conducted in august which showed a more divided american public on the issue of arming the rebels. and so, that could be changed from august. you can see that only 22% support arming the rebels, 21% support bombing the air defense sending the troops into syria? there seems to the contradiction of sorts in t
chavez for whatever his other faults is. that's the baggage he has. he's very defensive about it saying, look, i am not going to be making a sharp right-hand turn in this country. i'm a centrist. i will share the wealth and keep in the motion programs. mr. chavez's social programs that are so popular he. energetic guy. he's been up and down one side of this country and down the next house to house and the numbers that he's been accumulating at rallies really impressive numbers throughout the country, even right here in caracas which is normally hugo chavez stronghold. >> obvious question, when are we going to know? >> gosh, i wish i could tell you, don. what's going on right now, the polls were supposed to close a few minutes ago. they've not closed because there are people still in line. the electoral commission, we're waiting to see. after that, this is going to be hours and hours, and, don, we're talking midnight, 1:00, 2:00 in the morning highly likely. this is going to be a very, very late night in venezuela. >> thank you, paula. appreciate it. >>> jumping out of an aircraft seems
and these guys cannot be serious. >> it also -- they can't use the altitude defense that al gore was offering the president, the air was too thin up there, and he wasn't used to it. anyway, after the break, the national rifle association dips its toe into the attack ad waters taking on president obama, but while groups like the nra and their endorsements and dollars to the presidential campaign are donating their dollars to the presidential campaign, the more influential cash may be flowing down ballot. we will look at the big spenders next on "now." gecko (clearing throat) thank you, mr. speaker, uh, members of congress. in celebration of over 75 years of our government employees insurance company, or geico...as most of you know it. ...i propose savings for everyone! i'm talking hundreds here... and furthermore.. newcaster: breaking news. the gecko is demanding free pudding. and political parties that are actual parties! with cake! and presents! ah, that was good. too bad nobody could hear me. geico. fifteen minutes could save you fifteen percent or more on car insurance. i've got a nice lon
to prepare their defense, to research all the victims' stories, to come up with evidence that might dispute those stories. it is a reed that they can hang on. they will certainly try to make the most of it on appeal, but i think the sheer power of these eight victims who testified, plus the evidence about the assaults to two other victims, is so overwhelming, it makes it a very steep hill for sandusky to climb and a long-shot at best. i think sandusky realized that, you could tell, he broke down, by the way, at the end of his statement, choked up. there were a number of times that both the victims, and even mcgettigan, the prosecutor, made much of the fact that during the trial sandusky would seem to smile and smirk at the testimony. and i have to say, even as during this hearing, when the victims began to talk, sandusky was impassive and seemed to have a half smile on his face, didn't react, even as these victims were talking about the damage that he had done to them. but when it came time for him to talk, and towards the end, as he rambled on, he seemed to break down, choke up and break d
romney is a little more of a patriot and will handle foreign affairs and defense much better and i and i will say something hardly anybody says on the air any more. i'm very much prolife and i will always take the prolife candidate. >> shannon: foreign policy. how do you think a president romney would be different, better than president obama? >> i think after a clear terrorist al-qaeda inspired attack on the u.s. consulate that killed a u.s. ambassador he would not blame a filmmaker in cerritos, california. he would blame kade an al-qaede terrorists. i think he would stand up for america. >> shannon: on the issue of prolife. something we do cover a lot at fox, social issues even though there are some republicans who say stay away from it. not a winner for us. >> not a winner for me either. >> shannon: you are always a winner. >> shannon: what do you think it means for voters because there are voters who the social issues are what drive them to the ballot box or keep them home. >> a lot of that is going on. some voters say you are antiwomen because you are not' louing women to have unlim
army post in 2009. his defense attorneys claim the order violates his religious rights because of his muslim faith. >>> for closure rates hitting five-year low last month. the second straight month of declines. >>> kellogg's recalling millions of boxes of material warning they are cone tam nated by millions of metal mesh. frosted mini wheats. frosted mini wheats bite-sized. enjoy your breakfast. alisyn: we have a fox news alert from colorado where police just wrapped up a news conference on jessica ridgeway who disappeared walking to school last friday. police found a body in a denver suburb but they're not saying the remains are related to ridgeway's disappearance. dan springer is in colorado. dan, what did we learn at this news conference? >> reporter: well, alisyn, in a word, nothing. we know police found a body last night at 7:30, 11 miles away from where jessica disappeared or where she was last seen on her house on friday. other than that nothing was reported at the news conference. it lasted less than a minute. police took no questions. we do have live aerials of the area where
want to get a handle on the defense of the problem. periodically something will hit local or national press. there's an interesting story about a teacher in ohio. what she think is lost is the extent this problem is how often it happens and the harm that is truly felt by the students and their families. when they don't share the majority faith. so one of the reasons we focused on south carolina is we had a case they are in chesterfield county where there was a whole host of abuses among them. there was one day where the school invited some local ministers and the school's stated intent and purpose as many kids and if you go to school suspension. we represented a student and his family. when the father complains, you go by the principles he needs to get right with god. lucky for us, the christian rapper actually recorded it all and put it up on youtube, so the proof is not as difficult in that case as it often is. it is a springboard to look statewide. we look at these nationwide issues come over right now we have this focus there. that is an issue that needs to be addressed by as and
-stage missile defense system in europe to defend against iranian missiles. but that fourth stage in particular, there is a chance that president obama might rethink, based on his comment in korea. whereas romney seems to be very firmly committed to all four stages. but that's a pretty modest disagreement since they're both going to deploy the first three stages of this system. so, you know, it's a little bit tough to actually translate their apparent big rhetorical disagreement into actual policy differences. >> it will be interesting to hear if it is mentioned tonight and see if there are some nuances that really speak to differences in either campaign or whether or not as you mentioned, maybe it is just rhetoric as could be, definitely, in campaign season. michael, always nice to have you. thank you. >> thanks, jenna. jon: here's something else we hear a lot during campaign season. this one especially, liar, liar. that charge leveled a lot in the race for the white house this time around. does the terrell cross the line? we'll get a fair and balanced debate going just ahead. >>> also the cra
,000 afghan military personnel. it is their responsibility to step up to their defense of their nation. we went for al qaeda. we went for bin laden. we accomplished that goal. and now -- and now it is time. and they're willing -- it is time for them to stand up as we draw down. congressman ryan, he made it very clear that governor romney has a very different view, though he says he thinks we should get out in 2014, although he says that makes sense, he says we should never have announced that, and i might add had we not, the afghans would never step up. we never should have announced that and when asked, do you guarantee you get out, he said it depends. i'm serious. you heard it. it depends on a situation on the ground. it depends. well, ladies, it depends on nothing other than a date as far as we're concerned. it is time for the afghanis to take care of their own responsibility. but like -- but like almost everything, it depends. it depends on which day you asked him the question. it depends. it depends on the circumstances. but it wasn't just on foreign policy it depends. it was also the
the ryan plan, then he'll be more likely to be on defense. and i think he's got to defend the romney vision as opposed to defending the ryan plan. >> and bret, you just said he wants to keep this on economic issues. and social issues have once again that reared their head in this campaign, because of some answers, conflicting answers that mitt romney has given on abortion. listen to what he said a couple of days ago to the "des moines register". >> do you intend to pursue any legislations, specifically regarding abortion? >> i don't -- there's no legislation with regards to abortion that i'm familiar with that would become part of my agenda. >> and then he seemed to clean it up yesterday on the trail. listen to this. >> i think i said time and again, i'm a pro-life candidate. i'll be a pro-life president. the actions i'll take immediately are to remove funding for planned parenthood. will not be part of my budget. and also i've indicated i'll reverse the mexico city position of the president. i'll reinstate the mexico city policy, which prevents us using foreign aid for abortions overseas.
